Falls Prevention Evidence: A Close Look at the Cochrane Reviews

DUE TO OVERWHELMING RESPONSE, THIS WEBINAR IS NOW SOLD OUT! IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO REGISTER TO RECEIVE A RECORDING ($20.00 for Non-Members, FREE for Members) PLEASE CLICK HERE.

Falls are an important and increasingly common problem with a major impact on older people, their families and carers, health care workers and health care systems. There is an urgent need for widespread implementation of evidence-based fall prevention strategies.

Cochrane Collaboration systematic reviews rigorously locate and synthesise evidence from randomised controlled trials of health care interventions. Authors from the Cochrane reviews on fall prevention in the community and in hospital/residential care settings will outline the results of these reviews as well as results of major new trials likely to be included in the next updates of the reviews. Questions, discussion and feedback from the audience will be welcomed and will be used to guide the next updates of the reviews.

In this webinar, you will:

  • Learn about the current evidence to guide practice
  • Consider how you can use this evidence to guide your work
  • Assist the authors by giving feedback to shape the next updates of the reviews
